#MarchMeetTheMaker is an annual Instagram challenge organised by Joanne Hawker (designer, illustrator and Somerset Etsy Team Captain). It's a chance for makers to share their story and be part of a community for the month of March and give your social media a boost in the process. Lots of the Dundee Etsy Team took part so we thought we'd share a few snapshots on here.
Wow!! What an incredible day we had at the first Etsy Made Local Dundee.
Thank you all so much for coming along, shopping, saying lovely things and having fun at the photobooth and workshop! We've had the nicest feedback and the market had such an amazing atmosphere.
Of course, we need to say a big thank you to our wonderful team members and volunteers who helped make it such a success, we'd have been lost without you all! From decorations making and flyering to setting up the venue, manning the doors and tidying up, we appreciate every little bit.
Also, thank you to those of you who donated to Dundee Foodbank and to Pines and Needles for our Christmas tree. Photobooth photos will be online shortly (will pop a link to the album in comments).
If you share any market photos we'd love to see so make sure to use #etsydundee and #etsymadelocaluk
Now we're off to have a break to focus on our own shops but we'll be back in the new year with exciting plans!
The Dundee Etsy Team
Join us for the first ever Etsy Made Local Dundee!
Etsy Made Local is a national event that will see towns and cities from coast to coast celebrating the makers and designers that make up the creative community selling on Etsy.com, the online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods, and encouraging people to look locally for this year’s Christmas gifts.
The Dundee Etsy Team will be popping up at Wasps Meadow Mill Studios on Saturday 1st December from 11am-7pm for a chance to check out the best unique and locally made products that you won't find on the high street!
Organised by a team of local Etsy sellers, pop along to find meaningful gifts from 25 designers and makers. As well as Christmas shopping we’ll have lots of other treats including a crafty decoration workshop, cheesy photo booth, goody bags and festive evening fun with live music and mulled wine!
The Dundee Etsy Team is run by a group of volunteers to help offer support for local Etsy sellers. Since launching in early 2018, we’ve been working on creating a space for like-minded creatives to share feedback & experiences as well as organise events that help our businesses grow.
